Whew, what a year, right? Pandemics aside, it’s been a pretty good year for fans of video games. I mean, we’ve seen a ton of remarkable titles this year, from expected triple AAA releases to surprising indie darlings.
Not only that, we also saw the launch of the next generation thanks to Sony with its PlayStation 5 and Microsoft launching both the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. I say “saw” there because, lets face it, these consoles are incredibly hard to come by without paying exorbitant rates on eBay or from resellers. It sucks that this is where we’re at now, but hopefully both companies can continue manufacturing hardware at increased rates. We’ll see.
With the end of the year rapidly approaching, it’s that time once again where we take a look back at the year that was and hand out some awards. It’s nearly time for The Gamer Crash Awards!
Through the month of December, we’ll be tackling the familiar topics like Best Soundtrack, Biggest Surprise, Best Download/Indie, and of course, Game of the Year. However, I kind of really enjoyed what I did for the Awards last year, so perhaps I’ll be creating some unique 2020 categories as well. We’ll see.
As I always say, it’s always a blast putting these lists together and I want to hear from you as well so feel free to list out your own favorites in the comments. See you soon for some awards!
